Medicine - The Story Presented by Art
Project has been funded in the frames of Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation 2021 target grant competition for science popularization
The project "Medicine - History in Art" aims to present the history of medicine through the analysis of works of art in order to raise awareness about the role of science, research and innovation and to interest young generations in science. Sketches of Leonardo da Vinci's anatomical studies are well known, although themes of infectious diseases, epidemics and vaccinations, medical procedures, and physician's professional clothing occupy a special place in the painting. Salvador Dali's paintings may have correlations with biotechnology. In addition, works of art represent individual physicians, patients, clinics, anatomical theaters, wards, or physician consultation scenes, and often by analyzing the characteristic features of characters represented in works of art, a specific disease can be identified. The frescoes of the palaces of Italian aristocrats, paintings of Bosch, etc. are distinguished and interesting in this respect. It is especially important to analyze the bioethical aspects based on the facts presented in the works of art. The presented project will present the mentioned facts and their analysis to the general public in a fun and interactive way.The project is a continuation of the project "Medicine and Art" of Petre Shotadze Tbilisi Medical Academy (SRNSFG 2019 Target Grant Competition for Popularization of Science) and involves organizing a targeted science festival under the auspices of the Children's University through the following activities:
1. Organizing and conducting a series of popular science lectures;
2. Organizing and conducting a scientific picnic;
3. Organizing and implementing a seasonal school;
4. Organizing and conducting a scientific conference and makeathon.
